South Sudan: Opposition leader Machar ready to meet with rival president Salva Kiir.

Published

on

South Sudan’s armed opposition leader Riek Machar said on Wednesday that he would be “happy” to meet with his bitter rival President Salva Kiir, but denied knowledge of planned talks in Khartoum.

According to a statement issued by the opposition, Machar would “for the sake of peace” be “more than happy” to meet with Kiir.



Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir this week offered to host a meeting between the warring parties as regional leaders seek an end to the more than four-year civil war in South Sudan which has resisted numerous peace efforts.

However Machar’s Sudan People’s Liberation Movement-in-Opposition (SPLM-IO) slammed Khartoum talks as “disinformation”.

“(It) has not received any official communication regarding the venue of any prospective ‘face-to-face’ meeting between President Salva Kiir and Dr. Riek Machar,” spokesman Mabior Garang Mabior said in a statement.

The new location for talks between Kiir and Machar came from the latest meeting held between President Kiir and a high-level Sudanese delegation, which visited the capital, Juba.

The Sudanese delegation issued a statement saying the country supports efforts to realise peace in neighbouring South Sudan.

“As part of the IGAD efforts to revive the peace process in South Sudan, President Bashir has launched an initiative to bring together his two brothers, Salva Kiir and Dr. Riek Machar, in Khartoum soon,” said Al-Dirdiri Mohamed Ahmed, Sudan’s foreign minister.

Bashir’s offer comes after yet another round of peace talks organised by the regional Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) group failed to make headway in Addis Ababa last month.

Kenyan veteran politician, Raila Odinga has merged as a likely mediator for the face-to-face meeting which is scheduled to happen before the July 1 African Union Summit in Mauritania. Odinga met president Kiir two weeks ago and is expected to meet Machar in South Africa this week.

Kiir’s government has already welcomed IGAD’s call for a face-to-face meeting between Kiir and Machar.

The meeting will seek to resolve differences that have held back the revival of the 2015 peace deal.

South Sudan’s foreign minister welcomed Bashir’s offer, saying it will not affect efforts under the IGAD peace revitalization process.

“We now await this initiative to take place within the context of the IGAD process. It is not a parallel initiative; it is initiative within the context of IGAD revitalization process. We are happy that this is coming from Sudan,” Lomuro told the press in Juba.
